Default red shouldered hawk

Well I heard a hawk the other day and I wasn't mistaken (hard to be as their call is very distinct)... this morning I saw a flash of feathers and found it perched in a tree.

All taken with an Olympus E-PL2 and Zuiko 70-300mm, shutter priority 1/500-1/640, bright sun kept the ISO nice and low. A bit cold and windy but was able to snap a few before he took off. Hand held, some light cropping applied.

This one caught it while it was covering it's eyes with the inner lid

I cropped two of my favorites and did some healing to remove as much visible background branches as possible;

Nice shots of the Red Shouldered. Been trying to catch some shots of a pair of Copper's that have been around but no luck so far.
